Hello AAA Families!
Congratulations to us! We ran a very successful swim meet last Saturday and made a great impression on the coaches who attended the meet as well as the Zone officials. This is great for the future of AAA, we’ve proven that we can run a meet which will help us in the future when we bid for bigger meets! Our snack bar did well considering all swimmers who attended only came for one event. We made about $300 on the snack bar and $1200 on the meet entry fees! Thank you AAA parents for coming together with donations and help on Friday & Saturday. Very special thanks to our swimmers who stepped up and filled many of our volunteer jobs, many were working the meet and competing in the meet! It was great to see our team come together and work as a team!!! Thank you!!!

We’ll finalize these offerings and update the team soon.
